Remember my post on Scratch Baking, the new start-up at the two Milford, CT farmers’ markets? Well I went back for more on Saturday and got some amazing little apple plum pies. After devouring my pie, I started wondering about the woman behind the magic. Her name is Lesli Flick and it turns out one of her recipes entered my house earlier this year. Back in April, we got our first taste of Red Hook, and I fell in love with Baked. In a fit of grumpiness that I live so far away from Brooklyn, I purchased of the Baked Cookbook. Turns out Lesli is the “superstar pastry chef” behind the original brownie recipe in this cookbook!
Baked’s Matt Lewis @brooklynbaker recently gave Lesli a shout-out on Twitter and I absolutely agree that our little town of Milford is so lucky to have this talented chef. I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but these brownies have been praised by The Today Show, America’s Test Kitchen and were featured as one of Oprah’s favorite things. You can see photos of Scratch Baking in my previous post or simply find Lesli at the Wednesday or Saturday farmer’s markets in Milford, CT. (FYI there’s no Saturday farmers’ market on August 21 due to the Oyster Festival).
